Each year we paint our pumpkins. I’m not a huge fan of carving pumpkins and I’d much rather  clean up paint than pumpkin “guts” haha. So we paint! I started this when Chase was 2, and it’s been a hit ever since!Cutie  Concentrating :) Shailo made many things on his pumpkin including an A. Ever chose… Continue reading Pumpkin Painting 2016

It’s a PBS kids show that comes from a show my siblings and I watched as kids called Zoboomafoo.

By Monday she was coughing constantly and I took her (and Shailo) to our pediatrician. And they sent us home saying Shailo needed his nebulizer but nothing much about Ever. To… Continue reading Our scare with “Ev’y bear”

 If you’ve ever been in Colorado during the winter season, you know that it can snow one day and melt the next. In fact, it often snows and melts in the same day. True story. And also why I love Colorado: It may snow, but the sun isn’t too far behind. However, with that sunshine means quickly… Continue reading Breakthrough.
